Why do this?

The Macalester College Archives collects, preserves, and makes available materials about the college and the campus community. While it is easier to capture official administrative responses to COVID-19 via campus-wide communications, it is more difficult to archive personal experiences. How will the future Mac community understand the extraordinary changes that have taken place across campus? How will those of us grappling with these changes remember them down the road? By capturing materials which reflect individual, personal, and candid experiences, we hope to tell stories:
